Question 1 – Acid Toners

Question 1

What is your opinion on acid toners?


Nicola asks “What is your opinion on acid toners?”

Alpha hydroxy and fruit acids can be very useful for problem skin and skin rejuvenation. Unfortunately some toners or peels based on Glycolic and Fruit Acids can cause more damage then they help because of sun sensitivity issues plus Glycolic Acid can be quite harsh for some skin-types. Alpha Hydroxy peels based on Mandelic Acid and Malic acids are much kinder and gentler to the skin and cause less irritation problems. It is imperative that you use SPF when using these products.
